Hi, I'm interested in purchasing a mattarello rolling pin. I know that it's not commonly found in the US and I wondered if anyone could recommend a good reputable place or website for purchasing a mattarello rolling pin. Preferably, I would love to go to an actual store and buy it in person, in my case it would be NYC. I know very little about the actual rolling pin besides that it's between 3 to 4 ft (and sometimes feature small handles or none at all like a French rolling pin). As for the weight, best wood, etc., I have no clue. Any additional information would be welcome.
Another question? Does it matter terribly if the surface the pasta is rolled onto is not wood or is it best for it the surface to be wood for best result? Thanks.
